WHERE WILL MY PUPPY STAY?

8-12 week old puppies will stay in the climate controlled indoor/outdoor kennel and learn about and become desensitized to loud noises, barking dogs, and have lots of dog and human socialization, along with the Puppy Pre-School lessons. They will learn how to navigate a variety of obstacles like steps, uneven surfaces, and moving surfaces just to name a few.  They will also have lots of puppy playtime in the country!

12-16 week old puppies will stay in the climate controlled “Puppy House” and learn self soothing and how to be alone, along with Puppy Kindergarten lessons.  They will still have plenty of outdoor playtime and obstacle navigation with our puppy enrichment outdoor toys!

16-20 week old puppies will stay in the climate controlled “Puppy House” working on potty training and the Puppy Grade School lessons.  These puppies will venture out to public places on leash and learn proper puppy manners in public.  But just like all the other groups, everyone gets puppy play time in the great outdoors!

OTHER IMPORTANT NOTES:

You will receive updates and photos of your puppy at least once a week. Some photos will be posted on Facebook or Instagram, or even our website unless you express that you do not wish them to be posted.

Puppies will receive a new collar and leash (you choose the color), when they start training.

We will keep up with your puppy’s vaccinations and worming schedule as well as any health concerns that may arise. 16 week old puppies will receive their rabies vaccinations and will be started on Heartgard Plus for heart worm prevention and Bravecto for 3 month flea and tick prevention. We partner with the best at Brisbane Veterinary Services in Smithville, MO. We will cover any routine care. Non routine care is the responsibility of the owner.

Grooming fees, if needed, are the responsibility of the new owner and are not included. Puppies will be taken to a professional groomer to learn how to behave while being groomed. Puppies who do not require routine grooming will learn how to behave for baths and nail trimmings.

You will receive a video prior to your puppy going home of everything he/she has learned. The video will be for you to refer back to, should you have any questions after you get your puppy home.
Puppies picked up at Hardwood Kennels by their owner will receive a free 1hour lesson with 1 or 2 adults from the family.

Training fees are due when you purchase your puppy and prior to beginning training. Training fees are non-refundable.
